Prison Gone Wild

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is conducting an investigation into a privately run prison in Idaho. The FBI has received a video showing prison guards watching an inmate being brutally beaten. The guards did not intervene in the beating. The beating stopped when the attacker decided he was finished beating his fellow inmate to a pulp.Hanni Elabed begged the guards for assistance. He was being viciously attacked by another inmate at the Idaho Correctional Facility. The guards didn’t help him. They simply watched him being beaten for a considerable period of time. During the course of the beating, Elabed’s attacker took a break. After the break, he continued beating Elabed.

When the medical staff arrived, Elabed was unconscious . He was bleeding from his brain. He went into a coma for a period of three days. He suffered permanent brain damage. He has now been released from prison because the correctional facility could not meet with his medical needs.
U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson, in an Associated Press interview, stated that Federal Investigators are looking into accusations that the Idaho Prison uses prisoner-on-prisoner violence and intimidation to control the facility. Lawsuits brought by prisoners concerning this Idaho Correctional Facility have labeled it “Gladiator School” due to the brutal nature of how the facility is run.

Steven Pevar, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, in an AOL telephone interview, stated “This is the most violent prison I have ever seen”. The ACLU is currently suing the Idaho State Prison officials due to the level of violence at the Idaho Correctional Facility.

Steven Pevar stated, “it’s as if gangs have taken over the prison, where decisions are being made that seem to be consistent with allowing gangs to strong-arm other prisoners.”

Numerous prisoners have reported to staff that they were beaten up when gang members told the prisoners they had to pay rent to live safely in that housing unit. The guards did nothing about it.
